Blossom: Exploding hearts in the darkness

Surreal & Emotional digital Illustration w/Andrea Meléndez.

Blossom by Mario Sánchez Nevado


Following the illustrations released in the latest exhibition, “Substantia”, of the art collective Hysterical Minds, here it is “Blossom”, a very special mixed media (photo manipulation and digital painting) piece developed in collaboration with Andrea Meléndez. A great pleasure to have joined hands!

During the development, this image had it comes and goes. Ir started with a girl holding a mirrored universe and it mutated several times until it took the shape it has. You can see some examples of what I say below 🙂

At the end, this image just shows exploding hearts in darkness.

Next week, I’ll be back with a new piece, “Treasure”. I promise it will rock your socks off! 😉
